Game Day Munchies

  • high consumption of fruits, vegetables, bread and other cereals, potatoes, beans, nuts and seeds: I suggest to save money on game day and make your own trail mix, and throw in some nine grain bread croutons
  • olive oil is an important monounsaturated fat source: add olives to pizza!
  • Traditional spices for any dips, rubs, sauces or dressings for the Mediterranean flavor can include anise, basil, bay leaf, chiles, cloves, cumin, fennel, garlic, lavender, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, pepper, pul biber, rosemary, sage, savory, sumac, tarragon, thyme, za’atar
  • dairy products, fish and poultry are consumed in low to moderate amounts, and little red meat is eaten: grilling is still great with low sugar bbq sauce on your chicken
  • eggs are consumed zero to four times a week: scrambled egg tortillas can be portable and filling when the morning chill is baking off before kickoff
  • wine is consumed in low to moderate amounts: toast the victory with a bit of heart healthy red wine!
